Product Description

DVONN is played on an elongated hexagonal board, with 23 white, 23 black and 3 red DVONN-pieces. In the beginning the board is empty. The players place the pieces on empty spaces of the board, without restrictions. They place the DVONN-pieces first and their own pieces next. Then they start stacking pieces on top of each other. A single piece may be moved 1 space in any direction, a stack of two pieces may be moved two spaces, etc. A stack must always be moved as a whole and a move must always end on top of another piece or stack. If pieces or stacks lose contact with the DVONN-pieces, they must be removed from the board. The game ends when no more moves can be made. The players put the stacks they control on top of each other and the one with the highest stack is the winner.

Format: Toy
If you enjoy playing Go, you'll probably enjoy playing any one of the six games in the Gipf Project (Gipf/Zertz/Tzaar/Dvonn/Yinsh/Punct). Dvonn is no exception. The mechanics are simple, but when played against a worthy opponent, it can be a complex and richly satisfying game experience. As you would hope from a two person strategy game with a distinct Opening, Middle and End game, your first move affects your 20th move. While Kris Burm has indicated that this game in the series represents "Fire," he cleverly treats it not as a destructive force but a creative one. Contact with fire actually keeps you in the game and allows you to grow, while separation causes valuable pieces to be lost. One of the attributes of the Gipf Project that I enjoy is that while each game maintains an overall visual and tactile aesthetic, each takes an enjoyably unique approach to the concepts of force and strength. In the case of Dvonn, the more powerful you become, the fewer your options for movement. As a result you become vulnerable. That's a pretty neat twist.

This is a well made, well thought out game. It is the sort of game you get better and better at as you realize what strategies work and what strategies fail.
